In October 2019, we were successful in achieving a healthyliving award. Part of NHS Scotland, the healthyliving award is a national award for the foodservice sector in Scotland.

It has long been recognised that caterers can play an important role in influencing what their customers eat, and it is important to recognise and reward those who are making it easier for their customers to eat more healthily. The healthyliving award aims to achieve this.

The award criteria are based on the general principles of a healthy balanced diet and have been developed to be in keeping with Scottish dietary targets. Simple changes to the way a caterer works could make a significant difference to their business.

Congratulations to our chef, Jill, and her team for their hard work in helping to promote good nutrition at ACS.
